I might be packing up my life and moving to Michigan, y’all! #NorthMichiganUniversity is offering the first-ever degree in marijuana studies.

The four-year Bachelor of Science program is called “Medicinal Plant Chemistry,” and combines chemistry, biology, botany, horticulture, marketing and finance classes into one course.

Now, this class isn’t all about growing marijuana, rather the study of the plants. “No one is growing marijuana. No one is violating and state or federal laws,” NMU Board of Trustees member Steve Mitchell tells the Free Press. “But there are a lot of plants that can be studied.” Perhaps one day the kids taking this course can find a cure for cancer!

The director of the university’s chemistry department says that the program is growing. “We’re gaining students every week,” Dr. Mark Paulsen said. “With a full 12 months of recruitment, we expect that to grow.”

Would y’all move to Michigan to study cannabis plants?!
